Lonely Planet review

Mad scientists, thrill seekers and professional chefs get buzzed, speakeasy-style (read: appointment only) at this culinary curiosity shop. Here you'll find anchovy juice, spherifiers to turn fruit into caviar, salt for curing meats and, of course, that hallmark of molecular gastronomy: foaming agents.

Check the website for classes on making smoked watermelon with vacuum sealers and using liquid nitrogen to make powdered lard – alas, suspending disbelief with gellants isn't on the schedule.
